I'm running a monitor inside a tmux session, and now I want to see the status.

Surely I can tmux attach -t monitor and then detach.

But I'm wondering is there a convenient way to just have a look inside the session without attach&detach?

You could try using tmux ls to get the session name and then
tmux capture-pane -pt <session name> to get a snapshot of whats going on inside.
